I have had two close girl friends, forever. Yesterday, one of those friends came to visit us bringing her kiddos.
I have known Heather since I was 3 or 4 year old in Sunday School. We grew up together, playing together on and off, becoming closer friends in high school. I have done so much with her. She was in our wedding and I was in hers. Crazy! Who would have thought when we were chasing our boyfriends around in high school that some day we would be married (and not to those boys!), have kids, and our kids would play together. :)
They arrived in the morning and the kids got reacquainted. Heather works full time, so it is really difficult for us to catch up. She also lives on the complete opposite side of the area (I live on the WAY south end of 72nd Street and she lives on the WAY NORTH end of 72nd Street. She also has 3 small kids of her own and one step son who is a teenager. She is crazy busy!
It was fun to see them after so long. We had a picnic lunch outside before the kids got into our little pool to play. They played outside, moving inside, upstairs, downstairs, everywhere. They played the Wii (something my kids NEVER do), dancing a little in the cooler basement. More swimming to follow, dinner, and then more swimming. At 7, they had to packed up for home.
It was so fun to catch up with Heather. We chat on the phone, but seeing her is so much better. It is always like we never parted. We have shared so much over the years...now having our kids play is so fun. We can't wait to see them again!
